Corrie: Abi Franklin is going into shock birth

Coronation Street’s Abi Franklin actress Sally Carman has reacted to the huge baby twist that aired Sunday night.

Abi is hospitalized after initially collapsing in agony on the side of the road following drama with drug dealer Dean in an earlier episode.

However, fans of the ITV soap opera were left stunned when Sunday night’s episode ended with Abi realizing she was in labor and declaring she was having a baby.

The character has turned to drugs again following her split from husband Kevin Webster, after he messed up her recent fling – but he doesn’t know it was with Imran Habeeb.

But viewers were stunned when the character realized the pain she was experiencing was in labor following a surprise pregnancy.

Abi had absolutely no idea she was pregnant and actress Sally told The Mirror and other media that there were no signs she was pregnant.

While Abi had feared she was pregnant after the affair late last year, she soon believed she was wrong after getting her period following the scare.

With no physical signs, no baby bump, the mother-of-three only realized what was happening when she experienced the pain.

Sally explained: “There weren’t any [signs] So she initially had a period after not having one for a while. She thought she might be pregnant, but then she had her period, so she said, “Oh, I’m not,” and that was it.

“Because so much more has happened, she’s been trying to get their relationship back on track, that’s kept her busy.

“It was pushed into the back of her mind but it didn’t occur to her that it could possibly be pregnancy considering she was on her period again so there were no signs of it. She wasn’t gaining weight, there was just nothing.”

The moment Abi realized she was in a dangerous situation, the actress added that it took Abi a while to realize what was going on.

She explained: “Well that’s the genius thing about Abi, despite life’s blows she’s such a fighter and because she has such a big heart if there’s a glimmer of hope or a flash of light she’ll leap for it.

“In this case, standing on the side of the road after being kidnapped in a car, she has two choices and it doesn’t occur to her to lay down and think ‘this is it.’

Abi had no idea she was pregnant

“She immediately goes into fight or flight and needs to go to the hospital. It’s like ‘I can’t just sit here, I have to go to the hospital’.

“It takes a while for her to realize that’s happening, she’s having a baby thinking it’s back pain or she’s had a weird sleep, but it’s contractions. Because she has three kids, she’s like, ‘Oh, I know! ‘

“But I think there’s an element of denial to the last point because she thinks this can’t happen, this can’t happen, it’s a complete surprise.”
